Hi all, I have had an awesome and lively long weekend. Trip to Yosemite is one memorable excursion. Though the rim fire tried to grime Yosemite, it was looking gorgeous as always and is still a most spectacular national parks.
The giant sequoias, huge glacier point, never ending trekking to Nevada falls, tiny ground squirrels, intelligent coyotes, gazing mule deers, beautiful sunset, unexpected rainbow @ vernal falls & more and more made my trip beautiful and unforgettable. I never seen such an amazing sunset ever. The most exciting adventure was zip lining. I never imagined myself so inspired and fearless.
The only thing upsets me now is, being a lazy photo clicker. I was more into fun than taking pictures this time. But of course, have few clicks, hope you like them.
Tiered of trekking………
Unexpected and Beautiful rainbow @ Vernal falls……..
Awesome sunset ever…….
“Rakhi” festival of relationships between brothers, sisters, cousins and well wishing soul mates.
I’m missing this auspicious day from years, but of course I send my wishes and rakhi through snail mails.
Though this is not the raksha bandhan day officially, I celebrated it today wishing my all cousins and praying for their well being. And asual every year routine, I tied rakhi to my bestest soul mate GOD(Sai Baba)…..
Wish you all Happy Raksha Bandhan…….
Finally I found my hidden post which I assumed of publishing……..
Anyway here it goes my Independence day post…..
It is been 3 years I’m missing India Independence day. Missing my homeland’s independence day feels terribly bad. But celebrating it being distant is a different feel. I’m happy with this….
Happy Independence Day guys…..

Whirled around grand island on second day, learning its beauty and wonders. Explored the wondrous Oahu island from the lavish green mountains to the crystal clear blue waters across the rich & fertile central plain. Astounding island has variety of diversities which makes you feel never forgetting it.
The gigantic Diamond head view is one beautiful spectacle. This volcano symbol is worldwide recognition of Hawaii. Both clicks from different view points and day.
Beautiful view of nuuanu pali lookout has great history of hawaiian battle.
North Shore surfing beaches were so full with competitors for International Surfing Competition which made us stay for very short period.
A monk of Hindu temple, Hawaii owns his part time snack stall. He was so kind to give us free lays.

Enjoyed the great view of Chinaman’s hat.

It was an awesome time on rockies where I forgot myself and started dancing, responding to nature and music. You never know what triggers or inspires you. But when those vibes touch, one will realise the preciousness of the time and respond to it. It just as I said happened to me and my friends on rocky mountains.

A beautiful movie showing father and son’s trust on each other while haunted by a past tragedy. Before going to this movie, read lots of negative reviews but had to watch Will Smith andJaden Smith sharing the same screen and I never regretted spending 1 hour 40 min in theater. Loved the action and performances of son and father. Excellent graphic work, appreciate the efforts of graphic team.. Loved the emotions between son and father carried throughout the movie. Though the movie did not reach to usual expectations of Night Shyamalan’s masterpieces, liked overall drama.
Lastly the movies is not for adults who are used to super unpredictable action series. But as a family and specially for kids After Earth is a good time pass.
“Colorado” the state of beauty. I traveled to this place without prior knowledge of what when where it is, which i think made my journey more beautiful. As I was going more it became interesting with exciting scenic nature.
All the way I crossed California, Nevada, Utah and then reached Colorado. All 4 states have its own beauty, crossing all is like a making motion pictures with drastic nature variation dramatically as in national geographic documentaries. Living in bioluminescent waves of California, crossing bashing vibes of Nevada, gazing into enormous mountains which seems God made monuments of Utah, entering abstract and colorful Colorado is quite amazing.
Few clicks of my ongoing journey to Colorado….
The striped Breton shirt as we know it today came into being shortly following the 27th March, 1858 Act of France which introduced the navy and white striped knitted shirt as the uniform for all French navy seaman. The official striped navy shirt or French sailor shirt soon became more generally a working mariner garment as it was picked up by many nautical men; seafairers and sailors across the region of Northern France. It was said that when a sailor had fallen into the sea, the distinctive block pattern of stripes on the French striped shirt made him easier to spot amidst the many blurred colors of the waves.
